It is almost August and that means back-to-school time is right around the corner.
With so many things to prepare and think about, I thought it would be helpful to start pulling together back-to-school resources in a Collection by Destiny to share with my school community and all of you.
One of the first things I added were books focusing on back-to-school. Reading books like The Kissing Hand were always very important as we got ready for back-to-school time in our home when my own children were younger. I know this is a special way we can help families and children too.
A new one that we will be sharing in our library at Van Meter School during the first week is All Are Welcome by Alexandra Penfold and illustrated by Suzanne Kaufman.
...similarities and differences which makes us special and unique. It is one that every library and classroom needs!
In fact, All Are Welcome and several other back-to-school books can be found in the National Back to School Month Titlewave List that our friends at Follett put together for us.
This makes it very easy to find several more that are special to share during back-to-school time.Back-to-School Collection by Destiny I started too. There are craft ideas, online resources, more book suggestions, articles and helpful tips for parents, and more.
I will continue to add things to this Collection, so please let me know if you have things to add. I would be happy to put them in the Collection or even add you as a collaborator if you would like to contribute to it as well.
Happy Back-to-School time, friends. Enjoy the rest of you summer and getting ready for another super year!
